ATTO

In ATTO we can really see how well the HyperX Savage Memory stick performs when compared to it’s peers, offering performance which is right in between the SSDs and other memory sticks in reads and great write performance. 

In 128K and 1024K reads the HyperX Savage drive performs over 2x faster than the Datatraveler 100 USB 3.1 drive and in those writes it performs almost 10x better than the DataTraveler, more than justifying it’s additional cost.
